Chicago, .Tune 15. During the storm
Monday night the entire section of the
north wall of the manufactures building
at the World's fair site was completely
wrecked. Chief Hurnham says this acci
dent in no way discredits the stability of
the building, but is purely the result of
the contractor's carelessness in not brac
ing the walls. The loss is as great as it
was some months ago when a heavy blow
played Bitch havoc in the park. The wall
was up to a height of about seventy
five feet. The w ind must have been com
ing at a tremendous velocity, for it hurled
the wall in on the floor 100 feet or more.
The flooring went down beneath the
weight of the massive timbers, which
were piled upon it in a confused heap.
The engineers who looked at it shook
their heads gravely and said: "It's a bad
Some Kffects of the Storm.
The section that was swept down by the
gale whs completed to the roof line. It
represented more than 10O.000 feet of lum
ber. Massive hemlock columns that were
thought to le strong enough to stand be
fore any hurricane were snapped off like
twigs. Other supporting columns were
twisted out of shape and scattered over
the floor in the wildest confusion. LnrgS
quantities of window lass in strong
boxes were buried UtldrT the ruins.
It Played With the Ierrick.
Down in tl;e center of the building a
traveling derrick, 885 feet high, was se
curely anchored to the floor. This derrick
is used to hoist the big steel trusses for
the roof, each truss weighing MO tons
when in place. The trale tort- the derrick
from its fastenings and drove it fifty f.-et
or more down the renter of the building.
It was on wheels aril fortunately did not
topple over. One of the massive trust
half way up was twisted out of shape. Xo
other damage resulted to the building.
THE HURRICANE AT GALVA.
A Had Storm That Kills One Man ami
Dssarsjrs Murii Property.
GALVA, Ill., June IS The worst storm
that ever visited this part of the state
struck this c ity at 7:45 Monday evening,
carrying destruction in its course ami
causiiiK at least one death, August Olson
being killed etfhis home in the south part
of the town. The Free Methodist church
was entirely demolished and the congre
gation imprisoned in its ruins, several lie
ing seriously injured. It is miraculous
that any of the occupants escaped with
their lives. Many persons were hurt at
their homes or upon the streets by flying
debris. Hough's and Harnett's elevators
are destroyed. At least half of the busi
ness houses are unroofed and from eighty
to 100 homes w rec ked or destroyed.
Some of the Havoc Wrought.
The Chicago, Burlington and Quinry
roundhouse is demolished. The Hays
planter factory badly damaged and the
Mulford heater factory partly demolished.
The Union rink is a complete wreck; the
Baptist church spire is laying across the
street. The Jones clock, Palmer and Wal
ker, Howe. Webb and Mink agricultural
buildings are wrecked. The Chicago, Bur
lington and Quincy depot and Rock
Island and Peoria depot were all more or
less injured, while the damage to fruit and
shade trees is immense. It is wonderful
the loss of life is so small.
A List of Some of the Injured.
Galvu presents scenes of frightful dilapi
dation. There is not a building in the
place that does not show some evidence
of the fearful storm. Only one life has
been lost as the result of the storm, so far,
but nearly a score of persons received in
juries from which some them may not re
cover. Among the injured are: August,
Charles and Hulda Carlson; Krnest Dick
inson; Mrs. John Ericsson; Albert Erics
son and wife; Oscar, Georgie and Julia
Ericsson; Mrs. Shaftstrum; A. Wahl
strum; Jaeger; Mrs. Melline, Miss Mel
line and C. J. Johnson. Of these nearly
all received their injuries by the co lapse
of the Methodist church, where they were
attending a n ission meeting. The proper
ty loss is about f-100,000.
Furious Storm of Rain and Hall.
Haklan, la., June 15. A heavy rain
fell Monday evening over a space of terri
tory two miles wide and ten miles in
length in the northw estern part of Shelby
county, between Panama and Defiance.
In a few moments the two branches of
Mosquito creek and the Nishnabotna
river, in the neighborhood of Defiance,
overflowed their banks and many head of
stock in pens adjoining the banks of the
streams were drowned. There was a
heavy hail storm also. Com on low lands
was completely destroyed. No lives were

Deplorable State or Affairs In Parts of
New Orleans, June 15. The situation
of affairs in the alluvial districts of the
state is truly deplorable. Devastation
and desolation hold sway over nearly one
third of the parishes of Louisiana. Never

have so many crevasses occurred during
one flood. The Southern Pacific road is

of two miles and a connection track has
been built oi higher ground. It is only a
question of t me when the tracks of both
the Boa then and Texas Pacific will he so

Knin of Crops Will He Complete.
By far thj worst reports are from
the seem s of the breaks at the Belmont
and ProapeCt plantations. The water
from the former washed away the tracks
of the Miss ssippi Valley road Monday
night. The water from the Beiniout
crevasse will :n a few days join that from
the PrOSpeot break and then the ruin of
the crops in the parish of St. James will
be complete. The loss will not be con
fined to the agricultural districts, but will
fall heavily on the railroads The Missis

The town c f Kenner, ten miles above

THAT IMPERIAL FEDERATION IDEA.
To Be Discussed By Practical Business
Men from all Parts of Kurope A
Federation of British Colonies with
Practical Free Trade But a Tariff
Against the Best of the World An
American Idea That John Bull Is
Toronto, Out., June 15. Delegates de
part this week for Kngland from almost
every board of trade in the Dominion to
attend the session of the Associated Cham
bers of Commerce of the British empire,
which every five years assembles in London.
Representatives from every commercial
organization in Great Britain and every
considerable city of her colonies and de
pendencies have been appointed to attend
the sessions, so that the assembly will in
clude a notable gathering of practical
business men from nearly all parts of the
Protection to British Interests.
The interest in the coming session is
large augmented because it follows so
closely on Lord Salisbury's speech at
Hastings about protection, and also on
account of the proposal that the assembly
shall discuss the relations hereafter to
exist between (ireat Britain and her
colonies. This discussion will have Special
reference to the federation of the colonies
so as to put them on an equality with the
mother country, with not only represen
tation in the imperial parliament but an
entire absence of tariH between them
with, however, a tariff against all other
Possible E fleet on I'nele Sam.
One of the results of this policy would
he a discrimination in favor of the colo
nies throughout the British empire against
cotton, wheat and other food products of
the United States, while practical free
trade between Canada and England would
j follow. This, it is thought, would enor
mously stimulate the agricultural pro
duction in Canada and Increase immigra
tion. It would lie such a reversal of policy,
both by the mother country and her chief
colony, as to materially alter the relations
existing between the latter ami the United
Claims for the New Policy.
The lew policy would more firmly at
tach Canada to Great Britian, destroy the
desire for political union with the United
States aud effectually postpone the co:.
stant progress made in favor of recipr.
cal or commercial union on the lines origi
nally laid down by Krastus Witnan and
adopted by the Canadian Liberal party.
Brastas Wimau Wants Credentials.
Wiinan, who, it is understood, departs
this week for London for the special pur
pose of attending the conference, has ap
plied for credentials from the Toronto
board of trade in order to participate in
the discussion. It is understood that
Wiman's application will be opposed, as
many members of the board of trade believe
those whosi-ekto obliterate the commer
cial barrier bet ween Canada and the L'nitcd
States are disloyal to British interests;
while on the other hand others feel that
the conference would be incomplete
without the attendance of a representative

Those Fat-Vailed Persian sheep Are
Washington. June 15. Numerous in
quiries arc being received at the depart

fat-tailed sheep, a consignment of w hich
to the department has been extensively
reported in the newspapers. n some
cases these inquiries have been not only for
information, but for a supply of the sheep
themselves. The secretary of agriculture
States that the department has never or
dered and does not expect to receive any fat
tailed sheep from Persia or elsewhere. The
consignment to which reference was
doubtless intended was one shipped by
Mr. Truxton Beale, consul general of the
United States at Teheran, to whom the
sheep will be turned over as soon as the
necessary quarantine period has expired.
